Excerpt: "A week prior to the big game between the New York Giants (http://www.giants101.com/tag/new-york-giants/) and San Francisco 49ers (http://www.giants101.com/tag/san-francisco-49ers/) consisted of some trash talking, mainly from 49ers corner back Carlos Rogers (http://www.giants101.com/tag/carlos-rogers/). Rogers told the media that if he found the endzone hewould do his own salsa dance (http://www.giants101.com/2012/10/10/san-francisco-49ers-carlos-rogers-plans-to-salsa-again/), mocking Victor Cruz (http://www.giants101.com/tag/victor-cruz/)'s signature celebration. However, Rogers would not find the end zone, in fact, not a single 49er would. The Giants, including Cruz, found it several times, beating the 49ers 26-3 (http://www.giants101.com/2012/10/14/new-york-giants-do-the-impossible-go-on-road-and-defeat-san-francisco-49ers-26-3/).

(http://www.giants101.com/)In Rogers' defense, he did back down on his promise (http://www.giants101.com/2012/10/13/san-francisco-49ers-carlos-rogers-changes-mind-wont-salsa-dance-on-sunday/) after learning about the influence Cruz's grandmother had on his dance.

"I'm not gonna do it," Rogers told the New York (http://www.giants101.com/tag/new-york/) Daily News. "That's a tribute to his grandmother. Once (I heard) that, I threw that out the door. It's definitely out. At the time, I didn't know. It was just fun and games. It's his dance, but I enjoyed the dance. But now that he's saying it's more than that to him, I just throw that out the window." Read more...

The guy has proven to be a very humble, respectful person. Seeing him admit to not being able to cover Cruz last year was surprising.

It is even more humbling to think this guy was once a Redskin and gave props to the Giants.
